Her character on 'Homeland' has a somewhat over-active imagination but now Claire Danes has revealed she's suffered from crazy thoughts in real-life too.

The actress, who's pregnant with her first child, has revealed that she once had to seek therapy after suffering some scary visions as a child.

Claire tells GQ magazine that her "active imagination" often got the better of her before bedtime. At just six-years-old she she claimed to see ghosts, gargoyles and demons before she went to sleep, scary stuff!

Her concerned parents were apparently so worried that they enrolled her in therapy sessions to deal with her fears but Danes reckons it wasn't as bad as it sounds, telling the magazine:

"It was a little wobble. I've always had a really active imagination. Lots of kids have imaginary friends. Mine just took on a rather demonic form."
